Welcome to Part 1 of the Mystery Crochet Along using Bulky yarn. I am very excited to get started and have you make the first part of the pattern. Please be aware this pattern, especially part 1 and 2, seem kind of boring, but you will completely be surprised once you see part 3.
All you need for Part 1 is one of the colors of the bulky yarn and follow the pattern below. Part 1 will not take you very long. Part 2 will then be released next Saturday.
If you do not know what I am talking about, please check out my Main Post about the Mystery Crochet Along where all the information about this wonderful event is listed.
Be sure to join my Facebook Group and show off your WIPS and finished Part 1 pattern creations. I really wanna see which colors you picked and how fast you all crochet. I would also love to know if you have any ideas what it will be. Of course, I will not tell whether you are right or wrong, but I would like to know what you all think about it.
So, let’s get started with the pattern now. For Part 1, please start with the yarn color you have more of. For me, that was yellow.
Mystery Crochet Along Part 1 Pattern
- bulky yarn in 2 different colors (your choice of color and yarn company, it does not matter) -> I used DMC Natura XL 100% Cotton Yarn in the colors:
- #8 (2 skeins) and #9 (3 skeins), each skein is 50g/75m
- 6.0mm hook -> I used Furls Crochet Odyssey Hook in Purple
- tapestry needle
Stitches used (US terms):

- ch = chain
- sc = single crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
11 rows x 10 sts = 4 square inches
4 x 4 inches/ square
Make 12 Squares
Row 1: starting with the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc in each ch, ch 1, turn
Row 2 – 11: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn
Fasten off and weave in all the ends.
As you can see the Part 1 of the Mystery Crochet Along is very easy. Any beginner will have no problems making these squares. I hope you do not find this pattern too boring. Please think about what amount creation you will have in the end. I love the mysterious factor that comes with it as you do not know what it will be just yet.
I believe once you have seen Part 2 you will have more ideas on what it will be. Although, my guess is you will still not know exactly what it will be until you see Part 3. Somehow I feel like that this Mystery Crochet Along is so amazingly exciting, I might just do a lot more of them during the year.
Please let me know if you want me to create more Mystery Crochet Alongs in the future. Also please share this post with others on social media so they get to enjoy it as much as you do. I am pretty sure they all have bulky yarn in their stash and can easily just start now and follow along with us.
